Ribcor 49K

Complete with PopMatrix Technology and the trusted Ascent Blade, the Ribcor 49K stick delivers great feel and a quick release.

Specs

  • Construction
    PopMatrix Technology performance fibers are constantly in tension for a quick and efficient shot load and power transfer while being protected by the outer layers.
  • Blade
    The Ascent Blade features a new optimized stiffness profile that goes from softer in the heel to extra stiff at the toe for great feel and a quick release.
  • High Loading Ratio
    Thanks to a Power Taper Ratio of 3:1, players will get a more vertical stiffness, which means that less energy is wasted down into the ice and more energy is transferred all the way through the blade.
  • Kick Point
    True to Ribcor form, the 49k features a low kick point for easy to load shots with a surprisingly quick release.

Flex Chart

With all the different sticks available on the market, it can be hard to choose the right one. Not only are there many models, but curves and flexes can also be a challenge. Picking the right flex is a crucial step. If a player picks a stick that is too soft or too stiff they will not be able to load the stick efficiently. This chart was developed to help guide players, by using two simple criteria, weight and height.
